I travel a lot for work so it’s safe to say that I know my way around a hotel. I titled this writing after my recent trip stay at the Residence Inn in Indianapolis, Indiana. If you enjoy the kinds of adventures that Harrison Ford portrays in the Indiana Jones films, I highly recommend a stay at the aforementioned hotel.

How to Install The Plazer on Windows Vista x64
After having nearly completely given up hope on ever using the Plazer again, I have discovered a way to make the geo-location application work on my Windows Vista x64 laptop. If you read my previous post, you know that I had tried to go the route of the Plazer forums to see if there were any known workarounds. At one point I believe a member of the Plazes Crew even chimed in and said it would require re-coding a significant portion of the .NET application. Nonsense!
Goodbye Plazes (For Now)
I have been a loyal user of Plazes or more specifically, the Plazer for almost two years. During this time I have been Plazed over 1,000 times in over 100 Plazes, representing nearly 50 different cities. Its really pretty cool to look back at my world map and see all of the different places I’ve tagged.
I am here in lovely Toledo, OH tonight. Traveling for work again, seems to be becoming the rule rather than the exception. When I checked into my hotel I was greeted by the gentlemen behind the counter who worked rapidly to get me checked in. After a few moments of working he looked up and said “you were here last week, weren’t you”? Confused, I told him that I hadn’t been to this hotel before and he insisted that I looked familiar and he thought I had been a hotel guest the previous week.
Good Eats in Shelbyville
If you ever find yourself in Shelbyville, Kentucky apart from asking yourself why you are there, you should check out some of the local dining establishments.
Claudia Sanders (wife of Col. Sanders of KFC fame) restaurant is an excellent place to go for traditional southern cuisine. I had my first ‘hot brown’ which is a native Kentucky dish that consisted of turkey, ham, sauce, with cheese on top, baked in a small casserole dish.
Kentucky Family Dinner
After consulting the restaurant ‘ban list’ I arrived at the Kobe restaurant. Kobe is your typical hibachi/sushi place with seating for eight around a large grill. Since I was dining alone I was placed with a group of seven others who were at Kobe to celebrate a birthday.
